I’ve been looking forward to this giveaway ever since picking up a copy of The Scarlet Pimpernel at Barnes & Nobles two months ago. As usual, the giveaway is open only to residents of the US. I’ll announce the winner next Thursday. In the meantime, leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.
Now, if you will allow me to act as your friend, I will pledge you my word that I will find your son for you.
From rescuing the kidnapped son of a woman cast aside by society to other feats of courage and humanity, this book carries a full dose of the Scarlet Pimpernel’s trademark daring. Instead of a full novel, The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel is made up of several shorter stories. If you’ve enjoyed The Scarlet Pimpernel, you’ll definitely enjoy these too.
I received this book for Christmas two or three years ago. At first I was disappointed to realize that the book wasn’t a full novel, but after I got into the stories I found that I had no need for regrets. The stories are fast paced and mostly lacking the long expositional passages found in some of the other Scarlet Pimpernel books. They’re perfect for a quick read before you go to bed. 😉
Has anyone not read The Scarlet Pimpernel. For those of you who have read it, have you read any of the sequels? Which Pimpernel book is your favorite?
And…a picture of the giveaway book. Don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to win!

A Scarlet Pimpernel fan, but haven’t read any sequels as yet.
I’ve only read this one but the sequels sound great! My fave parts of the book are whenever Sir Percy outsmarts Chauvelain…hilarious stuff 🙂 I love the various descriptions as well—so cool 😀
The part where Percy puts the pepper in Chauvelain’s snuff box makes me laugh no matter how many times I read the book!
I love every form of the Scarlet Pimpernel– the books, the movie, and the musical 🙂 Thanks for this great giveaway!
